The LED Rubik’s Cube screen is also known as the cube-led display, hexahedron-led display, etc. Between each display surface to achieve seamless splicing, it can display images, text, and animation. With unique cabinets, these LED displays can get rid of the monotony of the traditional planar display, to give people a more creative visual experience. It is especially suitable for the decoration and art display of the interior,such as:

  • Museums

How to install LED cube display?

The main components of LED cube display are LED modules, steel cube frame, control board, power supply, flat cable, control software and power cable. :

  •  Measure the dimensions and specifications on site;
  • Designing the shape and dimensions using software on a computer.
  •  Prepare materials, including LED modules, cables, LED control cards, etc.
  • Cut the prepared materials into the required shapes.
  • Assemble the LED modules and connect the cables.
  •  Perform the aging test.

Witnesses we have done

Recently, we got a new job to create a Octagon shape LED screen in pixel pitch of 3.9mm, 8 faces, each face dimension of 4 meter by 3 meter, total size of 96 square meter, which will be used as a large indoor stadium LED screen.

It is a challenge job:

  • 25 days lead time, which means we cannot develop new molding to fit the project requires, we can only do some modifications base on what we have
  • Heavy duty hanging installation, which means iron cabinet (which are easy to customize shapes) is unavailable. We have to go with die-casting cabinets mainly and joint with iron cabinet to create the angle.
  • Minimize angle alignment between the joint of die-casting cabinet and iron cabinet
  • Magnetic front & back maintenance, easy installation and maintenance
  • Economic solution, very limit budget of this project

What we do

  • We design a customized iron cabinet with precise CNC finish with a angle of 135-degree size of 500mm x 1000mm
